Removing More Than Snow To Open Mountain Passes

Tuolumne County, CA – All the Caltrans-maintained mountain passes reopened this afternoon, but not before crews had to bust a boulder on one of the roadways. While clearing the snow and ice on Highway 108/Sonora Pass in Tuolumne County yesterday (Wednesday, May 11), crews discovered a large boulder blocking the roadway. In order to quickly remove it, the rock was broken into manageable pieces, as shown in the image box photo. That allowed for its opening today at 2 p.m.
